    I know in previous years you had to pass English Language in order to move onto a higher level however I believe its been changed for this year?

    I can't remember exactly however I recall my English teacher telling us that we only have to pass Language OR Literature to move on as either counts as the mandatory 'English GCSE', is this true? I hope it is as I'm so worried I failed that horrible English Language exam...

    You must pass English Language at some point. If you don't pass English Language when you recieve your results, your college will make you retake English Language alongside your other course(s). English Literature is irrelevant, if you fail then you won't be forced to retake, and nobody will really care.

    english literature is like your other optional subjects (though it is somehow compulsory at gcse), english language on the other hand proves your understanding of everything you read and that you can speak english in an english speaking country, which is important along side with maths gcse
